COLE: Hi I’m Cole
CHRIS: And I’m Chris
COLE: And we are here with the VERY FIRST salmon report!
CHRIS: And we are happy to report that…
COLE: The salmon HAVE hatched into ALEVIN!
CHRIS: Or you can also call them “Alvin” like the Chipmunks.
CHRIS: If you go up to the tank today, you will see them sticking their heads in the gravel!
COLE: This is perfectly normal behavior for salmon. Even though there are no predators in the tank, their salmon instinct tells them to hide!
CHRIS: If they were out in the stream, they would be hiding in their salmon nest, which is called a REDD.
COLE: It would be dark under the gravel so that is why we ask that you only peek underneath the black cloth for a few seconds.
CHRIS: Other kids from our class will be back next week with some more cool salmon facts!
COLE: Thanks for listening!
C and C: And now back to you!
